(Tuesday Nov 8)
Meds: 300iu Gonal-f , 150iu Menopur
Notes: estrogen=651.6; LH=2.7; progesterone=0.3; Left Ovary=10.5, 10.3, 10.3, 10, 9.2; Right Ovary=Champion! 10.4, 10.1
She did it! My right ovary finally has something measurable at our first appointment. I’m so happy. And they’re comparable to the Left. Well done you! If you find yourself having a drink tonight, please toast to my fighter ovary. So proud.
Just a quick story. My clinic has two doors to get into the building. In between the two doors is just a holding area I guess. Anyway, the first door always seems to be open but the second door to get inside opens at 6:27am and there’s always a group of women huddling in the holding area waiting for the second door to open. Sometimes the group is chatty. Sometimes the group is quiet and buried in phones. Sometimes it’s just me. The area is very small so you can feel everyone’s energy and I think sometimes we’re all just hoping someone will be chatty so that we don’t have to be in our own heads. That’s my thought anyway.
Today was a chatty day, thankfully. It’s been a while. Two young ladies. One doing her first IVF after 2 failed IUI’s. She was there for hopefully her last check to see if she could trigger. The other was I think in the middle of her cycle. I didn’t get which cycle it was but I think she’s a lifer like me. I walked into the 2 of them discussing something and I found myself joining with the vet and telling stories and giving advice. What struck me was how jovial she was. She’d mentioned that the doctors didn’t give her much hope but she was here giving it her all. Everything that came out of her mouth was with a smile. She was really funny too. I admired her. I like when people speak candidly about infertility. It makes it seem less taboo-ish, I think.
Anyway, there’s no real point to that story. I just wanted to remember her and the fact that she brightened my day.
Emotional: Still feeling good. Clinging to the happy.
Physical: Every present nausea and dizziness. Please make it stop. Let’s add tiredness. Probably because I’ve been up since 4.
Food: 2 Boiled eggs for breakfast. Turkey sandwich minus the bread for lunch. Keto chicken patties and stir fried veggies for dinner.

Yay to right ovary! That’s so nice you had some good chats with fellow infertiles at your clinic. No one ever talks to each other at the place I go to and I am always so curious wondering about their stories.
It doesn’t happen often but it’s nice when it does 🙂
Wow. Happy about the right ovary! Praying for a lovely happy result this go!
Well done right ovary! Just curious as I’m also about to transfer…. why are you eating so little?
Hmm, it doesn’t feel like a little. I think yesterday’s was low on calories because I couldn’t stomach that pork but I’m eating more than I usually do. I usually skip breakfast because I don’t get hungry until late. The eggs in the morning are killing me. Yuck. Do you think I should be eating more?
Oh no, so long as you’re not restricting. Why are you eating the eggs if you’re hating them? Are you following a diet or lifestyle?
Nope. Just trying to increase protein and its the quickest breakfast i can think of for my lazy bum. I read that protein is good for egg quality.
I did the paleo diet for a while and got sick of eating eggs. I found a smoothie with raw eggs a good alternative… blend together raw eggs, coconut milk and fruit… quick and a nice break from the taste of the eggs.
Really? And you can’t taste the eggs? I have all those ingredients. I’ll try it! Thank you!!
I couldn’t…hope it is tasty for you!
It’s quite tasty! Thanks for the suggestion! I’m so happy. No more eggy taste. Lol
